SJD is in Rotorua to perform an one-off intimate show at Casa Blanca. Tickets are limited and expected to sell out.

Sean James Donnelly, or SJD for short, is back with a new album, Saint John Divine. Recorded at Roundhead Studios with Neil Finn, James Duncan, Chris O’Connor, Mike Hall, Sandy Mill, Julia Deans, Anna Coddington and Victoria Kelly.

He has a great national tour planned and below you ll find some of the shows planned for this exciting album release!

The Refreshment Room in Titirangi are hosting a ‘Classy night with SJD’ (29th August) 3 course meal and intimate show, Very Limited tickets from eventfinda. PS These guys do exquisite food!

The Paramount Theatre in Wellington (3rd September) SJD play Saint John Divine Live with String Quartet with special guest Shayne P Carter performing solo.

The Rogue Stage presents SJD with Pete Fountain at The Casa Blanca Theatre, 122 Riri St, Rotorua (4th September)

The Mercury Theatre in Auckland (10th October) SJD play Saint John Divine Live with String Quartet with special guest Shayne P Carter performing solo.

SJD will perform solo shows supporting Anika Moa’s ‘I am Woman see me tour’ around NZ in September.

‘Little pieces’ and ‘I wanna be foolish’ both feature on this album, and I can highly recommend following the link and listening to the album on bandcamp. Its a subtle album with very clever songcraft. The backing band consists of Sandy Mill, Victoria Kelly, Mike Hall, James Duncan and Chris O’Connore.

The venue is a fully functional 130 capacity theatre in the industrial zone in Rotorua. Casa Blanca Theatre is the home of Rotorua Musical Society and have put on productions since the seventies. It is a quaint little theatre, perfect for the intimacy The Rogue Stage is famous for. On this particular night, Musicworks Rotorua and Coro Sonic Lab is putting together a magnificent sound rig to bring the full SJD experience to life!
